  • [01] Govt: Yes to Euro coast guard, no to joint Greek-Turkish patrols

    "We must all understand that our international obligation regarding the Schengen treaty is to effectively contribute to the battle against terrorism, which means immediate identification and recording of the migrants that enter into the country; the identification should be held at the time they set foot on the Greek territory," Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras clarified on Friday, speaking in Parliament in reply to a tabled question by the opposition on the refugee crisis.

    Greece, he continued, is the last bastion of stability in a destabilised region, while in reference to Frontex, he said Greece has asked that force to be increased in the country.

    [02] Five ancient olive trees 'rescued' from Aigio to be transplanted in central Athens

    Five centuries-old olive trees that date back almost to antiquity, with ages spanning 700 to 1,500 years, are to be transplanted in central locations in Athens, in a project funded by Greek railways subsidiary ERGA OSE SA.

    The "rescued" trees are all located in a region around the coastal city of Aigio in the northern Peloponnese, and their age has been certified by the Agricultural University.

    A plan for their transfer to Athens has been drawn up and is now in the final stages, with the transfer to take place within the next few days.

    Two of the ancient olive trees will be transplanted in front of the University of Athens' rectorate, one on the corner of Diakou and Syggrou streets, one in a square on the corner of Vassilis Sofias and Vassileos Konstantinou Avenues and one in a central location of the defence ministry grounds.
